Ex-Atlanta cop indicted in alleged shooting of tourist near Georgia Dome



10/11/18

A former Atlanta police sergeant was indicted Wednesday on multiple charges in connection with the shooting of a tourist near the Georgia Dome in 2017.

Mathieu Cadeau
faces charges of aggravated assault and reckless conduct as well as two counts of violation of oath by a public officer, according to a statement from Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard’s office.

Cadeau, 52, is accused of shooting Noel Hall as the North Carolina man left the Atlanta Supercross, one of the final events at the Georgia Dome, on Feb. 25, 2017.

About 10:30 p.m., Hall was driving with his family along Northside Drive when he attempted to turn onto Ivan Allen Jr. Boulevard to retrieve the bike his son rode in the motocross event, according to the statement.

Hall encountered Cadeau, who was directing traffic off-duty. Cadeau would not let Hall make the turn, and the two had a “brief discussion,”
Howard’s office said.

“Hall, frustrated by Cadeau’s actions, decided to make the turn anyway in an attempt to retrieve the motorbike,” the statement said.

In response, prosecutors allege, Cadeau pulled out his gun and shot Hall at close range. The bullet struck Hall in the back of his arm and went into his side before exiting through his chest. The bullet missed Hall’s heart by just two inches, Howard’s office said.

Hall’s wife, their two sons, his grandson and another passenger were in the van at the time, according to the DA’s office.

“In addition to the near-fatal injury to Hall and the bullet almost striking his wife, the shooting placed several other bystanders leaving the motocross event in jeopardy of injury,” the statement said.
